    Default Tom Clancy is DEAD

    http://variety.com/2013/biz/news/tom...ad-1200687980/


    I read a few of his books, the spy and espionage game wasn't really my thing, but he was still a good author. RIP

    Pretty young, too.

    Seems like authors have a tendency to die young.

    I haven't researched that. Just subjective observation.
    Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Bill Hicks

    He's been writing books for like 30 years... You guys got a weird definition of young.

    66 is fairly young, especially for someone rich as fuck.

    My dad turns 65 in February and has already spent a little too much time in the hospital. Bummer, man.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    66 is not young. Are you high? Its only "relatively young." If he died at 71, no one would say he died young, yet there is only a 5 year difference. This isn't some tragedy, he lived a pretty full life.

    Nitpicky. Little. Shitkicker.

    Etc. "Relatively young", then. *Teabags the unicorn-fondler*

    How is past the age of retirement, young? He died over twice my age, and likely 3x your age.

    Jesus Christ. Obsessive li'l spud, ain'tcha? It was a spur of the moment comment in which I forgot to temper it with a "relatively". Pull the Galapagos turtle out of your butt, Captain Asperger's.
